Coyne's Cut To Clear Glass Vase Czechoslovakia
« on: December 06, 2014, 08:03:33 PM »
I am hoping that someone can tell me more about this piece.  It is a goblet or a vase?  Does the pattern have a name?  How old is it?  I have googled the maker "Coyne's" & I cannot find anything about the company. 

It measures 8 11/16" tall, 4" wide at it's widest point, & it weighs 14.7 oz.

Coyne's was most likely an American importer of goods from Czechoslovakia.
Sorry, I can't help with your unusual goblet, although finding the maker is likely to be difficult, so many were made. However, that's not my sort of area, and I'm sure somebody who knows more than I do will help a bit more than I can.
Welcome to the board.  :)

Having said that many goblets were made, I've never seen one with this unusual feature under the bowl before. That might help somebody (else!) towards a maker.

Hi. I have had a vase with this same form but a different decoration. They date to around 1970 I think and made by Borske Sklo.

There is an article in German 'Glasrevue' 1970 - 10. pp. 289-290: "Dritter Jahrestag und Perspektiven des neuen Betriebes des Nationalunternehmens Borske Sklo".

The form there is described as a 'Vase' and given a number of '28060/8666/8" '.

But yours is not cut with the bird motif.

Hope this helps.

I have been looking around for Coyne's too. I found a vase for sale in Seattle on ebay with a similar sticker. I know that vase to be an 'Elegance' design for Skrdlovice. So Coyne's were supplied by various companies under the arrangements of the old Czech regime. I have also seen Borske Sklo bar ware with the label too.

Coyne's & Company Inc., of Minneapolis, Minn.
